10:00pm
lou: good evening, everybody. we begin the broadcast tonighte with a number of developments that took place not hours ago, but days. it's unclear tonight whether information about thesehet developments have been managed, and if so, to what purpose? today, two days after the presidential election, we've learned that two iranian fighten jets k like this one, attackedi one of our unmanned and unarmed predator joans. that attack took place 16 miles off the coast of kuwait in international airspace. happened last thursday, but an administration official has remained silent until today. today we larned that boeing
10:01pm
will be slashing another 10 percent of management jobs in its defense division by the end of thii year in an effort to cu more than $2 billion in costs. boeing says it cannot project exactly how many workers will lose their jobs as a result. and boeing is going to some great lengths to insist that these layoffs have nothing to do whatsoever with the sequestered defense cuts set to take place next year. you will recall that less than two months ago the obama white house was so intent on avoiding publicity like thisit offered to indemnify government contractors for losses and find if they held off on issuing left notices. that is required by the warrant act until after the election. it is worth noting that boeing ceo james machen any serves on both president obama's jbs council and as chairman of the president's export council. why are we learning about these matters after the election?
10:02pm
and why is this administration, which was want intent on being the most transparent in history, seemingly everything but. he will take that up tonight. the iranian shooting with former u. ambassador john bolton and pulitzer prize-winnin journalist judith miller. also, the racial divide dominating the presidential race in 2008. some say it was no different this yea. what implications does that have for both parties? i will talk with former special counsel to president clinton ronnie davis and wrigley standard writer steven haze. end new signs that big changes are in the offing for presidt obama's cabinet tonight. fox is correspondent channing greenwell breakdown who is leadg do is staying in just moments. first, two days after his reelection of president obama is now faced th an international incidenthat some may perceive as an act of war, an incident that occurred five days before the election. for the latest details on our
10:03pm
attempts to shoot down a u.s. truck or international waters to return to fox his national security correspondent jennifer griffin for report. >> aa 4:50 a.m., days before the u.s. president's election, to iranian fu25 fighter jets like these intercepted and fired twice upon an unmanned, unarmed u.s. m-2 one predator drawnof the persian gulf. the first time they have ever fired on a u.s. drone. the shots missed some of the thames, and iranian fighter pilots briefly pursued the drone which landed safely at an undisclosed location. >> it occurred over internaonal waers approximately 16 nautical miles off the coastline. the aircraft was never in iranian airspace. it was always flying in international airspace. the international recognizes territorial limit is 12 nautical miles off the coast, and we never entered the 12 nautical
10:04pm
mile limit. >> asked whether the incident was an act of war, the pentagon spokesman said he would not legally label it, adding the state department had protested through the swiss protective powers, which have represented the u.s. government says the u.s. embassy takeover in 1979. >> the united states has communicated to the iranians and will continue to conduct surveillance over international waters over the iranian gulf consistent with longstanding practice and our commitment to the security of the reion. >> in december a classified arkie 170 u.s. and aldrin and crashed inside a round of losing contact with analysts'. theye recovered it, largely intact. the pentagon did not a first disclose details of the more recent run incidence, setting it is classified. meantime, more rising tension is limning farther east with china as president obama prepares for a second term. a new report suggests china is two years away from applying
10:05pm
nuclear ballistic missiles on submarines, missiles with a 4600-mile range. china recently unveiled a second sophisticated stealth fighter jet that industry experts say may have been developed with stolen u.s. technology. that chinese jade 31 stealth fighter has an air intake and wing dimension that is suspiciously similar to the american s35 and a silhouette similar to lockheed martin's f-22 rapture. furthermore u.s. navy officials confirm a russian nuclear-powered attack submarine was detected 300 miles of the east coast of the united states in late october. russia's navy commander announced that on june 1st russian nuclear-powered subs would return to patrolling the world's oceans. lou: fox news national security correspondent. joining me now, former u.s. ambassador.
10:06pm
off the coast of a ron. this was peculiar at best. >> is timing may be coincidental. something to do with the elections. what he said when i asked why this information was not released. because of a classified nature of that activity. then normally would not release this information. i think that is strange credulity, but i do think it did not want to make an active war. they pbed, tried to shoot it down, failed. it does not say much for their capabilities. lou: your thoughts. >> well, i think it is outrageous that the justification for not releasing the infoation before the election was that he mission was classified.
10:07pm
it is okay to release today. i think that demonstratesthis is simply a pretext. i think that what we have here is the clear indication that they are prepared to try to shoot down u.s. drones. it did find one u.s. drone on its territory about a year ago. they claim they shot it down. we claim it came down becausof defects in the drug itself. obviously it would be a big price for the iranians to shoot down one f ours and be able to prove it this time. lou: go ahead. >> i think the information leaked. that is what the administration is saying, that they were responding to a new story from another cable news network, and that is why there responded that all. let's not have any illusions. we are in a n so covert old war. someone is killing their
10:08pm
scientists. we already know that the americans have engaged in cyber rfare, yes. there are going to provoke. we are going to probe. both sides don't want an unintended or. at think the important thing to remember here is that you could have a very, very dangerous situation. lou: yet some air force sources are telling ox news that they are very suspicious of this incident as it has been recounted by the bush -- obama administration. and that is, you know, this isa drum that apparently flies abot 130 miles-per-hour. issued 25 fighter jets travel just below 600 miles-an-hour. how is it even conceivable that they could not, if they seriously desire to shoot that down, avoid doing so. >> one more point on the intelligence issue.
10:09pm
the normal route is, you say, we don't comment on intelligence matters. in terms of the shootdown, who knows why they could not shoot down. >> that has the smacking, if you will, ofa fairy tale. the fact is if there were firing to shoot it down, it is interesting that former military officials would have such a view of the incident itself. let's turn to another issue. that is avoiding war. israeli newspaper and a cbs local news department reporting that valerie jarrett has been actually talking with iranians. the white house knocked that down. rumors persist. >> well, there are lots of partners. photos -- people i've talked to
10:10pm
say that they have not been leading in the delegation anywhere, but as we discussed before the election, i think one can expect how white house push very earlyand very intensively to get talks going, whether or not they are bilateral talks, 1- someone, or whether they involve the p-5, there will be talks in an effort to get a deal lo the iranians are going to begin their exercises, drills, air defense drills over the weekend. >> i think this is in part for domestic political consumption to show that they are standing up to the united states and israel. in part it is intended to intimidate the obama administration, but look. efforts to shoot down on an aerial vehicles, the drills, the continued progress of the iranian of their weapons program of go to show that they are not
10:11pm
being slowed down by the sanctions. they have no intention of giving up their nuclear ambitions. if you do not like these actions now, imagine how much more difficult it will be to deal with once it gets nuclear weapons. lou: benghazi, open heings scheduled for next thursday. are ou hopeful that the american public will learn something more and sensitive about what happened and why the u.s. government did not do more to save the lives of four americans. >> surely we should have learned more about this before the election, will we are definitely going to learn more aftr. this story will not go away. we will finally get some clarity lou: you get the last word. >> well, i think the administration is still going to try and stonewall. we know that a number of cables %-have ben pulled out underthe guise that there is an investigation going on. i think this could go on for quite some time.
10:12pm
lou: interesting that the state department is making -- well, those documents and cables available. but only thrugh today and tomorrow when, of course, congress is not in washington. to ambassador, thank you very much. much more on the iranian incident. he will take that up the "a-team." the changing faces of the obama second term. trenton, a gartner, panetta, and more could be on our way out. shannon green with the story. the looming fiscal cliff, our economy hanging in the balance.

manner that is going to be constructive for the u.s. econy. lou: to you think that is the reason the mart is selling off? >> that is one. relating to the fiscal cliff, the market is very much interested in the manner in which might resolve the fiscal cliff. will it rely more on tax hikes or spending cuts to take that issue of? lou: something like that, would that work? >> i think it would. a very good chance, but i will add the market is very much concerned about what regulatory policies are going to of look like in the years ahead as they relate to energy. lou: the congressional budget fice renewed more warnings on the fiscal cliff. we will be hearing about that, by the way, every day from now until it is resolved. the united sates sees a half percent contraction in the economy next year if we go over the cliff.

♪ lou: exit polls show a deepen -- deepening racial divide. putting president obama over the top both in the electorate and the strength of support. joining us, former special counsel to president clinton, steven hayes, senior writer for the weekly standard, both fox these contributors. i am uncomfortable saying that this is such a big deal, but the polls suggest something. look at these very quickly. the makeup of the electorate, not appreciable difference from 2008. if we could look at that graphic . 74 percent back end of weight.
10:33pm
72 percent this year. we see the numbers rise slightly . staying about the same. the reality is that the support for president obama of monks in the demographic groups, if we could take a look at that, the support for president obama, i'm sure that this is, you know, very interesting. he lost about four points of support. he lost support as well down 2%. hispanics picked up 4%. asians picked up remarkably. a very small percentage. that does not look like such a big deal because it represents basically what happened in l.a. >> we have to look at politics. this network is trying to explain why he predicted a
10:34pm
romney landslide, and a lot of other conservatives are trying to blame in all on romney. it reminds me of what we democrats winter after 1972. the late and beloved note george mcgovern no longer with us was blamed for the landslide a 72. we lost 80, 84, in '88 and th're still blaming the candid it's. it was not the candid, and it was not the way he communicated. it was the message. it was -- it took bill clinton to redo the map and barack obamacare continued that legacy. the reason why the hispanic vote went for broke, is because bit romney made him look liberal on immigration policy. did not follow george bush's policies and innovation, or you might have been president. it is about content, not the communication. lou: is not one to answer my question on the racial divide.
10:35pm
i will try with you. >> well, i think the numbers speak for themselves. the fact that the electorate this time, the change in the percentages among white voters. if the romney campaign got al, the percentages they tught they needed to we might be talking about a different result . much bigger story to the failure to provide a clear contrast in competing views of the way that the country is going to move toward. lou: a clear contrast. basically the republicans took the day off. they just didn't show up. these are exraordinary numbers, the level of turnover republicans. i'm hearing all of ths stuff from have reached to this group, change the message, adopt policies, and all of which may be true. i would support it, but the fact is, that es not look like the
10:36pm
reason that romney lost. does it? >> well, i'm sorry if i did not directly answer your message. that is not the reason. lou: we will catch up. >> they're racial analysis is not the reason that romney african americans supported a fellow african american the same way irish catholics to, but if barack obama had been against helping people who are in the underclass, the lower economic level, if he had no proposed policies that african americans can supprt then take a look at women. the fact that mitt romney was still talking about the pro-life position and the anti-gay rights position on social issues, he lost because of his message to hispanics because he was in favor of self supporting 11 million people. that is why i mentioned his positions and their substance is
10:37pm
not what i think it -- it means there was contrast. lou: what do you ean >> there are a number of areas in which there was not enough contrast. if you look at the way that romney talked about taxes, apologetic. very effectively made mitt romney looked like he was oing to raise taxes on the middle-class. that was the cry based on this one study. weeks and weeks and weeks. any time the republican candidate is viewed as the tax sector. in many had to defend his position in the debate he was a way out of his way to say if you are wealthy and all you're not getting anytax cuts, and it was a defensive argument on a fundamental issue rather than pointing president obama had twice argue in public that raising taxes in an economic downturn would doom the economy.
10:38pm
the president of the united states said th and iran on a proposal. lou: two things that seem peculiar. i would love for both of you to respond. i heard a lot of bonn, about the tea party. the tea party did not exist in is election. it was a non factor. why in the world would there be so much concern in the republican party about the tea party. why was there an idea that you're better off today than you were four yars ago and pick 2008 as the year, the baseline, and it was a lousy year. in point of fact, just about everybody is. what do you make? very quickly. >> your immediate question, yes, we were better off than the dept of being in a whole. president clinton explained the argument that we were clbing out. by that time election day, the
10:39pm
percentage of people is of the country going in their right correction, saw the economy improving, higher than has been, ronald reagan when was reelected. lou: i don't have the time. >> he was there. lou: this is the -- why did he call -- mixing his old boss. why did he not call first governor chris christie who gave him the photo op, four and half hours and a big hug there was persuasive to just about 15 percent of the voters. should that not have been his first document. >> probably did not want to run again. facing a lot of questions like those. lou: there are no questions. a man and it is president the gilded photo, embedded in the minds of 15 percent of the
10:40pm
voters. >> i agree. i said that before. as said it would happen. i thought that was going tobe a g factor, and it turns out it s. i don't think it ends up deciding the election. lots of other things that ended up, but there is no question that having chris christie give president obama that figurative and literal embrace of the national stage a week bore the election when he was the keynote speaker at the republican convention was held to the president's. >> and the your out of time. of all was right on the issue according to the poll and is supported his position. lou: we will take note of two things. your candid oe. your former boss played a big part. we would both agree that governor christie probably should ha been telling you know, a conference call to the both of them. >> at some point.
